Flipping Jig Review

Recommended Posts

Chris you should just tie your own jigs.....

 

im all seriousness, nice review, the only jig in your group I fish is the AT jig, I like to trim the top skirt and turn it into a "finesse" cut jig, paint is just so so when in rock, but it does stand up nice, which is important to me as I don't "flip" a jig that much rather use a jig in open water and like a jig that stays upright and doesn't roll over.

Great review! Ive used the AT jig and the hack attack. The AT jigs use to be my go to jig and still use it. The only complaint I had with it was that the rattles fall out pretty easily. Not a big deal though

I have used the AT jig (though I don't anymore, really) the Hack Attack (still gets regular use), but the Scott Canterbury Dirty Jigs flippin' jig is my current favorite.

Thanks for the jig review. I use the AT Grassmaster jig more than the AT Rattlin jig. Guess I fish weeds more than rock. Maybe throw in an OutKast or the old Jungle Jig next time just for kicks!

Yeah, they are steeper. Last year Cabelas had a 25% off sale on them so I tried a few RTX's. I did have one where the weed guard fell out. I emailed them and they replaced it no problem. Glad they stand behind them. Now I got an extra head to use for paddle tails!!

My original goal was to keep all the jigs under $5 for this review, then I screwed up when ordering the NuTech and ordered the elite which was $5.50. I also wanted to review flipping jigs and not grass jigs, the RTX will be included in an actual grass jig video. I am also going to do a review of the "smaller" manufacturers like NorthStar and a couple others, I feel they are in a different class then these jigs.

Check out M-Pack jigs Chris. I fished they have a unique weed guard that Mark Pack came up with. Used them down on Fork this year and they come thru timber rather well. Pretty spendy though.

I use the Grassmaster a lot too. Both are quality jigs, I rarely throw any other.

    • I did ask about dish soap and he said because there are  no toxicity studies that have been done with soap mixed with their product he can't legally comment on it. He did make it clear in his own way it wasn't needed. Haven't talked to the Crossbow people yet.
    • Interesting.  I was searching for instructions and got conflicting advice.   The no oil thing is good to know...I've got this creeping charlie issue in my lawn.   2,4-D and triminic doesn't seem to do much.    Gonna give this stuff a try.  What did they say about a little soap in the tank?
    • If it is garter snakes, pick them up with your hand and put in a bag.   Release them a mile or so away.  
    • One of my absolute fears, I'd sell the house!
    • Ask and ye shall receive. Now I have so many orioles, lots of young ones, I'm going thru almost a jar of jelly every 2 days! I wouldn't think they would be migrating thru going south yet would they? The catbirds like it too and I have about 1/2 dozen of those. They are pretty neat birds. I also have about a dozen of some kind of sparrow hang around that I can't identify. I can't take good enough pictures to post or I would. They are big birds and the closest I can come is a white crowned but they are not white on top of their heads, that's brown but have black and white stripes over the eyes like white crowned. Also their chests are mottled yellowish brown and darker brown. No yellow patch or white throat like a white throated. Broken white stripes on the wings and lower back. Bill is dark gray on top and light translucent whitish (not really pink?) and they actually look a lot like a female Grossbeak but I know they aren't. Seems one of the sexes are a little browner than white on the head stripes.   They are brown around the eyes but do have a thin white area below that to neck but the white does not go under the bill/throat. I'm searching websites but still can't find them.
    • Delcecchi, Just got off the phone with Brushtox customer service. For tank/spot treating lawn use 3/4 oz per gallon. No surfactants (Diesel will kill all grasses). Should not harm northern grass if directions are followed. Be sure of zero rain for 24 hours. (The mix for brush killing is 4-6 oz/gal and does require surfactant.) Weed will probably take a week to show results. BE Sure to wear long sleeves, long pants, rubber/latex gloves, shoes and socks, and eye protection, it's very irritating to eyes. Apply with coarse spray.  The guy had never heard of this Celandine Majus (Sp)?  Phone number is 800 264 5281 if needed and they are very helpful.  I haven't talked to the Crossbow people yet but plan to later today.  Southern Ag.(crossbow) phone is 941 722 3285 
    • Our annual ice fishing kickoff event is a little over a month away!  We just want to make sure everyone gets it on their calendars!   This year's date is Saturday, September 28.  Held at our building in Blaine, MN.   We'll have seminars from Ice Team and Ice Force Pros, along with vendors showcasing all of the new products for the upcoming ice fishing season!   Oh, and AWESOME deals on everything you need to have a successful season!   We'll post more details as we get closer, but for now please mark your calendars for Saturday, September 28 and we'll see you there!!   Thanks for all of the support!!
    • https://raganandmassey.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Brushtox_1gal.pdf   Looks like a couple quarts per 100 gallons, with some diesel mixed in.   That would be like maybe an ounce or a little less per gallon.   Sounds like heavy duty stuff.   
    • Warning about 80 is just for the day you spray right? It is getting cooler now so I should be ok. Del, I wonder if that Brushtox has mixing instructions for brush killing. That would be pretty strong and I have been warned about following the instructions exactly. Thank you. I will check into it today.
